Anti-malarial activities of acylated bruceolide derivatives.


Several O-acylated derivatives of bruceolide (2) were synthesized and their anti-malarial activities together with selective toxicities were examined. It was found that 3,15-di-O-acetyl-(3c), 3,15-di-O-propionyl-(3d) and 15-O-propionylbruceolide (3b), as well as bruceine B (3a), exhibited potent anti-malarial activities with high selective toxicities.
